Buena Vista Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Rolled Very Fine Condition Re-release of 1986
Original Walt Disney Productions One-Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Clyde Geronimi animated fairy tale, SLEEPING BEAUTY (1959) starring the voices of Mary Costa, Bill Shirley, and Eleanor Audley. This rolled one-sheet poster was prepared for the 1986 re-release of the film by the Disney Studio. The feature was in active production from 1951 until the end of 1958 and was the last Disney animated feature to have cels inked by hand. The beautiful art direction is inspired by European medieval paintings and architecture, and the elaborate background paintings took between seven and ten days to paint. SLEEPING BEAUTY was perhaps the first animated feature released in 70mm, in large part to present the music in stereo. Though much of the soundtrack in based on the Tchaikovsky ballet, George Bruns received an Academy Award nomination for Best Musical Score for his original songs. The tagline promoting this release says "Share It With Someone You Love". MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster to be authentic, vintage, original. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
